The Divas are back!

Hello blogworld

Well our extended hols over at Divas by Design are now over and it's officially the start of a New Year and our first challenge for 2012.

I have loved looking through all your Christmassy projects and am sure the new challenge will get your creative juices flowing.  So for challenge number 18 we'd like to see your projects for either New Beginnings or Thanks and our sponsor this time is:

I went for a Thank you theme as my card, as I needed some to send out for Emily's Christmas presents.  

This is what I came up with:

Front shot:

Detail of image:

Took me blooming ages to work out what I was up to but looks very simple and, I hope, elegant.

I used:
Saturated Canary: digi image Thank You, coloured with my Flexmarkers and Promarkers.
Image die-cut with a Nestie.
The bottom half is a Inkadinkado flourish stamped across the card.
The sentiment is one I've had for ages.
Scallop is a Die-namics die.
Pearls are from my stuff (Using it Up!!)

So, why not pop over and join in - we'd love to see your creations.


PS - I can see I'm over a 100 followers now by the numbers, but I can't see your images!  So hello and welcome to my blog - I hope you find something you like here.  I know I also have to do the candy and I will, promise!

A challenge, or two:

Saturated Canary Challenge - #8; Clean and Simple

Dream Valley Challenges - Challenge 23; Anything Goes
